The Safety Features of the 2018 Honda Ridgeline

Standard Active Safety

Starting with the entry-level RT model, you’ll find active safety features such as:

Honda Fit Fog Lights-Wheels

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – This system helps to stabilize the Ridgeline on turns or curves. And with added traction control, it minimizes any sliding when accelerating or braking on slippery or loose road surfaces.

Honda Ridgeline

Anti-Lock Braking System – This system prevents the wheels from locking up or skidding when the driver is applying the brakes and keeps good, tractive contact with the road beneath.

Electronic Brake Distribution

Electronic Brake Distribution – This system can automatically adjust the braking force applied to each individual wheel to maintain control in various conditions and scenarios.

Brake Assist – This system can help bring the Ridgeline to a stop more quickly and safely in an emergency braking situation.

Honda Fit Rearview Mirror

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines – Backing in and out of tight spaces is made much easier with a rearview camera that includes normal, wide, and top-down viewing modes.

Daytime Running Lights – Illuminate the road ahead while also ensuring the Ridgeline is clearly visible to other drivers on the road, no matter what the weather conditions or the time of day.

Standard Passive Safety

Within every design detail of the Ridgeline is a commitment to safety, even if you don’t immediately see it at first glance. With an internal body structure that has been engineered to absorb and distribute crash energy away from the passengers inside, a complete system of airbags, and safety features geared for children, the Ridgeline is not just a utility pickup—it’s also a safe family vehicle inside and out.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure
  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
  • Childproof Rear Door Locks

Honda Sensing Technology

The Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technology helps drivers to drive better and safer on the road. The suite is standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition models and makes the Ridgeline one of the safest pickup options on the road. Its features include:

Collision Mitigation System – This system can detect when the Ridgeline is dangerously approaching an oncoming vehicle or other object and can engage the brakes in order to mitigate any impact.

Road Departure Mitigation System – Using sensors, this system can engage the brakes and steering when the Ridgeline goes over lane lines and road markings to keep it from going off the road.

  • Forward Collision Warning – This system will warn the driver when an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously approaching the Ridgeline so the driver can react quickly.
  • Lane Departure Warning – If the Ridgeline rolls over lane lines on the highway, this system can warn the driver to correct.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control – Drivers can select the desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle ahead, and this system does the rest, balancing between these two settings to keep the Ridgeline naturally within the flow of traffic.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System – If the lane departure warning goes unheeded, this system can nudge the steering to bring the Ridgeline back into the center of the lane.

More Driver-Assist Technology

Beyond the Honda Sensing suite is even more driver-assist technology. Drivers will be able to see more and do more with technology that includes:

2018 Honda Odyssey Multi Angle Rearview Camera

Honda LaneWatch – A camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror displays a live video feed when a right lane change is signaled, allowing drivers to see up to four times more in their blind spot than using the mirror alone.

2018 Honda Ridgeline Exterior Black Edition Night

Auto High-Beam Headlights – Illuminate the road ahead with optimum nighttime visibility as the auto high-beam headlights automatically switch from high-beam to low-beam depending on oncoming traffic.

Honda Fit Rearview Mirror

Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor – This system uses sensors to monitor activity in the driver’s blind spot and can issue alerts when the coast is not clear.
